The client sells web-based form and workflow software to both small businesses and enterprise-level clients including the State of Oregon and the University of Tennessee. Their software allows their clients to automate HR, finance, sales, and support processes. Users can quickly and intuitively create online forms and build and export the data collected. It also allows for integration with external tools and systems.
Keyhole consultants assisted the client’s existing development team with their proprietary design tool. The tool enables a non-programmer to create a form-based web application by dragging and dropping UI elements.
The form contains various pages with pre-designed UI elements. Each element had a number of associated properties interactive at design-time. Each element has behaviors that impart program logic to the form.
The user interacts with those artifacts by dragging and dropping elements, drawing behavior or workflow connections, modifying properties, and then saving the form as an XML file to a server. A web-based player interprets the form’s XML file and then uses it to serve the form to an end-user as a web application.
- SPA-style Architecture
- UI/UX Design
The client took the migration as an opportunity to enhance the look-and-feel of the application as well. Keyhole’s UI expert was brought in to create a new user interface layout and design for the Designer. This included the creation of over a hundred visual elements and icons and then the build-out of the Designer frontend. In addition, he redesigned the dashboard and login page for the Designer, ensuring that each page was responsive to device constraints.
